When four high school teens accidentally find an old video game console they get transported into the game Jumanji. The four must learn to work together as a team to defeat the game before they become trapped there forever. Personally, I found this movie to be fairly predictable and more on the cheesy side. I mean, of course they would defeat the game, all become friends, and learn to be themselves. That aside, I did enjoy Jack Black playing Bethany. He really seemed like he was actually a teenage girl trapped inside a grown man's body. Not my thing, but would probably recommend to a younger audience. 3.5 Stars

"Overall, I quite liked Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, there is a lot about it to enjoy and to like. I didn’t expect a lot, but I didn’t think it was going to be terrible or anything, I was actually pleasantly surprised by the movie and liked it the entire way through. All of the characters are likable, all of the actors do a great job, they are clearly having fun and it shows..."

Surprisingly good family movie to watch.

Dwayne Johnson is probably never going to win an Oscar for Best Actor, but he sure knows how to make a movie fun to watch. This is a really fun movie to watch with friends, family or on a date. The characters are enough of a misfit group to make it even more interesting. Special effects added to the fun factor.

Amazingly funny, active and creative! Actors did a great job of their roll reversals! Recommend for a familymovie night for sure!

Almost shockingly, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle succeeds as an inspired, hilarious and creative popcorn movie! I never saw the original, but I doubt it could entertain as well; the update to parody an adventure video game format is gold and gives a lot of material. Above all, the three hilarious actors Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black chew up the screen and all play off-type in an unexpected and intriguing way. Hart as a smart zoologist (after spewing facts: "How did I know that??"), Black as a teenage female (weird I know but it kinda works) and the Rock as a badass who is safety oriented and afraid of any risk. Karen Gillan keeps right up with them as a nerdy girl in a ass-kicking model's body. There is a lot of generic stuff in this movie, such as the bad guy, a lot of anonymous motorcycle fighters to beat up and random cgi animal attacks, but in the format of a video game it fits. The whole movie is near-perfect for summer: a mix of smarts, action and big laughs along with brainless "just go with it" lightness.

My partner and I did not like this as much as the 1995 original with Robin Williams, however it did have it's moments.
The continuity did not flow as well, and felt that the missile armed dirt bikes, did not fit the "Welcome to the Jungle," theme of the story. Dwayne Johnson (Moana: 2016), Kevin Hart (Central Intelligence: 2016), Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy -1&2) and Jack Black (Kung Fu Panda: 1, 2 & 3) all seemed to fit in this romp, however did not know why they had to change actors, from the original to the "opposites," in the jungle.
The character development was a nice touch, as they became better people. I see that Dwayne Johnson was part executive producer and would have done better with some creative changes, in our opinion, but nice enough adventure story, but the villain could have been portrayed less as an over-the-top comic character.
The extras on this film did not add much to the DVD.

Many quotes in IMDb already including my favorites when too-pretty Bethany needed help to pee first time as Professor Shelly Oberon. Below are the few more serious quotes on choosing one’s life that are not in IMDb:

We don't have a lot of time in this life, and I personally don't wanna waste it on being, like, a gym teacher.
You're all here for a reason. You know what it is. But this is what you should be thinking about: Who you are... in this moment in time, and who you want to be. You get one life. You decide how you're gonna spend it.
It's a lot easier to be brave when you have lives to spare. It's a lot harder... when you only have one life.
-We-we always only have one life, man. Okay? That's... That's all we get. That's how it works.
The question is, is how are you gonna live it? Which guy are you gonna decide to be?… Did I just quote our principal?
